Pat Dapuzzo

Pat Dapuzzo (born December 29, 1958) is a retired National Hockey League linesman, who wore uniform number 60. He officiated in the NHL from 1984–2008.

Dapuzzo grew up in North Bergen, New Jersey, where he went to Franklin Elementary School and attended St. Bridget’s Church. As a boy, he could often be seen playing roller hockey on the street by the church with his friends. A great mystery to the people who knew him growing up in New Jersey was where he learned to skate well enough to officiate in the NHL. His officiating career began in the 1984–85 NHL season, only six years removed from graduating high school.[2] He officiated 1,532 regular season games, 63 playoff games, and one All-Star Game. He also worked the 1991 Canada Cup.
